Cornmint: Mentha arvensis, triple steam distilled herb/leaf/flower, India. Menthol and menthyl acetate are the major constituents of this essential oil. Its aroma is strong, fresh and somewhat bittersweet. It is widely used in flavoring toothpastes, moutwashes and pharmaceuticals. This oil is good for the nervous system acting as a regulator and sedative. Because it is antiseptic and anti-bacterial, it can be used in swollen gums, mouthwash or mouth ulcers, and toothache remedies. Not to be taken internally. Per information appearing in www.herbalgram.org: �The Commission E approved internal use of mint oil for flatulence, functional gastrointestinal and gallbladder disorders, catarrhs of the upper respiratory tract, and external use for myalgia and neuralgic ailments. Mint and its oil are used in China for treating indigestion, nausea, sore throat, diarrhea, colds, and headaches (Leung and Foster, 1996). Contraindications: Internal: Obstruction of the bile ducts, inflammation of the gallbladder, severe liver damage. To be used only after consulting a physician. External: For infants and young children, mint oil-containing preparations should not be used on areas of the face, especially the nose. Flash Point: 149F

Adaptive pain relief
If you care for someone in pain, you will pass this gem on to them. I have applied this without carrier oils with no skin distress to various muscular painful areas with great success. Having said that, handle as if you had just sliced a jalapeño pepper and wash your hands well before touching eyes, nose or other sensitive areas. If your body needs cooling for inflammation or heating for circulation, this lovely oil seems to read the situation and act accordingly. Great for arthritis, sprains, tension aches and muscle pains. Aroma is uplifting and minty, but not so strong as traditional peppermint and spearmint.

Thank you for the sample!
Thank you for the little packet of samples included in my order this time! My daughter and I enjoyed smelling and trying the different oils/butters. The cornmint being one of those samples. We LOVE it. I never saw a reason to try using cornmint, I always have peppermint on hand, but cornmint is different - not quite as potent smelling, but very nice! I will be including it in my next order - we like it for lipbalms better than the peppermint! Thank you for the sample!

Nice Mint Scent
I am very glad that I found this mint. It is a little different from the peppermint essential, not as strong maybe, but it has a very nice mint scent.

Cornmint has become my favorite mint EO. I made a chest rub with cornmint and eucalyptus during flu season and it helped with respiratory symptoms. I also made up inhalers with cornmint as the main ingredient and it is also great to maintain focus. Cornmint in a diffuser is lovely. The fragrance is a softer, sweeter mint than peppermint. Love it!
